400 W. Indiana Ave.
The entire park is a classic, established in 1909. In the middle of this quaint neighborhood, you’ll find this quiet oasis—Carle Park. When you enter all you can hear is birds chirping and wind rustling through the trees. The Park includes brick walkways with domed-lanterns flanking the park.
You’ll want to enter the park through the Carle and Indiana Street entrance for the most direct way to the equipment. There are two sides to the equipment areas. The first area you approach has a large structure with slides, hanging bars and steps to maneuver. The most unique part—a huge spider web to swing and climb on. Move on from the structure and you will see a set of swings and a merry-go-round—classic playground equipment. The other side of the equipment area has a teeter-totter, baby swings and a spaceship.
The park also includes a soccer field, if you have a group of kids bring along your soccer ball.
The park does offer a few off street parking areas, these can be a little difficult to find.
There is one water fountain, but no restrooms.
Situated across from Urbana High School, old Abe Lincoln is present in bronze form. By the statue a beautiful fountain sits behind an even more beautiful pavilion. Well-established trees and flowers provide shade and ample opportunity to teach your kids about nature. Carle Park is a neighborhood park in every sense and a great asset to the area.
